_It's working now. _________________________________

I am unable to edit the following items when I click on EDIT and get this message instead "We’re sorry, the page you have requested is not available" - What am I doing wrong?

Unfortunately, IA does not like some of the characters in non-English languages (as in Georges Méliès) and to properly have the tags and info show editing is required. As this has happened twice, I'm gong to stop uploading for the evening (shame, really) and wait for good advice.

I'm curious as to what the solution was as all my items are doing the same thing.

typically the solution is to wait and be sure to clear your cache before checking again. disks fail and when they do servers become read-only. when they're fixed (usually within 24 hours) the item will be read/write again.

Thanks muchly Mr. Kaplan. I've have left a note in the review section that people will have to wait on the item. I don't use flash and can't get to the page to add the files. This is the first time I've tried to upload since I've upgraded Firefox. I hope that's not causing the issue. It's Firefox 11.0 if anyone has had any luck I'd like to be able to cross that off my worry list.

Just tried with Google Chrome and that didn't help. I can't get to the edit page on any item including ones over 2 years old.

I've used both gecko and chromium engines (browsers) for my uploads and waiting a few hours was the solution that worked for me. Are you still experiencing problems? If so, you may want to start a new thread for this so more people see it and can assist you. - Gen :)

Waiting worked. It seemed to be an editor problem though not one associated with a particular server.

Kaplan's solution to wait is what did it for me. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. - Gen :)
